Benjamin Franklin

A quote from Benjamin Franklin

I have often and often in the course of the Session, ...looked at that behind the President without being able to tell whether it was rising or setting: But now at length I have the happiness to know that it is a rising and not a setting Sun.

— At the signing of the Constitution. [September 17th, 1787]
